I didn’t have much to add this weekend, being here in L.A. while Joe Jareck was on the road with the team. Of course, while waiting for the plane to take off, Jaime Jarrin called to lobby for Joe to do the traveling on the next trip, too. It seems they’ve taken this superstition to the utmost levels, which is not surprising.
Sorry I didn’t post any lineups, but it seems the chatter was still pretty strong among you all. The weekends seem quieter anyway on Inside the Dodgers. I’m guessing most of you like to check in on this while you’re at work. Just don’t tell your bosses I condone that sort of behavior.
To answer one of the questions about Ryan Ketchner and Derek Thompson, both are recovering from left-elbow surgeries, but Ryan’s is doing much better. He’s back and pitching again with Vero Beach and earned a win the other day, I believe. Derek has not been throwing yet, though, and is still quite a ways away from what I understand. Hopefully there will be more to update down the road and I promise to post more regularly now that the team is back in town.
Let’s just hope that I don’t jinx the winning streak by doing something differently.
By the way, I wonder if Wilson Betemit thought it would be this easy in the NL West. Since he showed up, we’re 9-0.
